My sisters-in-law, Marion and Amelia, should have their own show on HGTV. I asked them for a little landscaping advice, you know, for the future, when I get around to doing my yard. Instead, they whisked me off to Home Depot and helped me pick out some stuff, then we came home and planted it all.
In one afternoon!
They planted hibiscus, geraniums, calla lilies, day lily bulbs, and a whole bunch of other stuff I can’t even remember. I wanted stuff that was drought tolerant, stuff that would grow easily, low maintenance, etc. etc. We also planted some wildflowers and some herbs (seeds). It was dark when they finished, so I don’t know how it all turned out, but it was looking good.
Afterward, Rob and I fixed a pasta dinner for them. (A third sister was there, too, and she drove us to the Home Depot and let us put steer manure in her car, so I guess she gets credit for helping too.) We had wine and ice cream, and it was just a lovely meal. I didn’t burn anything, for once. I like my new oven very much.
Yes, these are the same two sisters who just got back from Laos. They are crazy but they do know plants.
